“Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.”John Wesley
This quote speaks to generous grace.
After all, we can’t give what we haven’t received. Which means, if God has done something for us, He wants it to come through us!
It’s been said that you make a living by what you earn, but you leave a legacy by what you give.
There’s something about giving that imprints a heart, changes a life and makes a difference.
God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”2 Corinthians 9:8
Notice it’s what we give that impacts others. But our culture says it’s what you receive that matters most. This is short sided and inward focused because receiving something impacts us. When I share with others it impacts us and those around us. Now we have legacy.
The truth is, we have a moment in history to make history. John Wesley’s quote speaks to us having an attitude of giving that echoes in eternity.
The scripture teaches us to number our days and we’ll be wise. When we understand the brevity of life, we won’t waste it or throw it away, but rather we’ll use it for the glory of God.
“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.”Psalms 90:12
So, at City Heart for the House is coming up and it’s our moment to give and impact our home, neighborhood and world.
It’s our moment to show generous grace and give so that others can feel the love of God and see the love of God in action. It’s our moment to share with others out of the abundance He’s given to us.
“And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.”Acts 20:35
It is more blessed to give than to receive because it’s the giving that impacts others and leaves a legacy.
So I ask you, do you have generous grace?
What God has done in you, are you letting it come through you?
So here’s what we do. We ask God what we should give and then we plan it and give it. This is not manipulation or pressure, it’s an opportunity to have generous grace and make a difference.
I encourage you to join in on what God is doing. Let Him come through you and see what He does in you.
Thank you for being a part and the best is yet to come!
